wet headlining in 405

Post by puc » 11 Dec 2003, 19:13

i found water in the front passenger footwell and linked this to a wet headlining. now i guess its the sunroof drains BUT the sunroof mechanism is jammed. does anyone have any idea how to clear the drains in this situation or even where they run?

The drain tubes at the front are visable with the sunroof open. As yours is jammed I would suggest lowering the roof lining or take it out which is fairly easy as all the trim panels are push fit, and have a look inside
The other options are to remove the roof console and wind the sunroof manually, or remove the glass panel leaving the rest in situ.

On the BX the drains run down inside the A pillars (each side of windscreen) and I have unblocked them in the past by taking the trim off then making a small hole in the tube and passing a wire up inside. Then resealing the tube with waterproof tape.
I believe there is a set of rear drains as well but can't say where they might run.
